The second part of the statement is the problem. The truth is, finding breast cancer early does not prevent metastasis or death in everybody. In fact, over 90% of us who have metastatic cancer were diagnosed early, did our treatment, and still had a metastatic relapse. I was diagnosed Stage 2, with no infected nodes. And yet, I ended up having it spread to my liver, which means it is incurable and terminal. My story is hardly unique. We still do not understand why that happens in some and not others.
So charities that are spending their money on education and awareness are, in my opinion, wasting money. We are aware-we know “what.” It’s time to learn “”why.” We need to focus on research to discover why some cancers metastasize and others don’t, and find better treatments-while there has been progress, treatment is still largely the same as it always has been-surgery and chemo. (I have been on chemotherapy for over 6 years now, 9 different regimens). 40,000 women a year die of breast cancer, a number that has remained unchanged over the last 30 years.
Please do not support an awareness charity like Komen, that is stuck in the past and is really just a marketing charity. They spend only 16% of all the money they take in on research, the rest is spent to tell people what they already know and to put on feel good parties. Other charities are worse. Instead, support StandUp2Cancer, as they do research with the goal of getting discoveries to patients quickly.
